    In this two hour workshop nationally known language and literacy scholars David Kirkland and Ana Celia Zentella will work with participants to understand the dissonance between the “Englishes” students have bring to college and the “required” English they are required to use for the academy.of the classroom. Attendees will participate in a series of language games, discussions and activities that dissect students’ multiple languages and the power-context of the classroom where these languages are enacted. The workshop will then ask participants to apply what they have learned to their own classroom teaching.
